CHURCH SPOTLIGHT – Speegleville Baptist Church

Worshiping God, Sharing Christ, Building Believers — this describes the ministries of Speegleville Baptist Church. Dr. Joe Bailey, who is entering his 16th year as pastor of the church, continues to lead this caring congregation in growing both in their relationship with the Lord and in serving their community. The church is grateful for its new web-page and logo both provided by the Empower Waco mission team(SpeeglevilleBaptist.org).

Recently the church hosted the seminar The Externally Focused Church workshop led by Dr. Gaynor Yancey of Baylor University. Willow Grove Baptist Church also participated in this exciting and thought-provoking seminar.

The church continues to reach out to the Speegleville Community through its partnership with Speegleville Elementary School. Each year the church hosts a back-to-school meal for the teachers and staff and provides the school with many needed school and teacher supplies. In addition, several members of the church volunteer each week to read with students through the school’s Book Club program.

Speegleville Baptist Church operates a food pantry every 3rd Wednesday that continues to address some of the hunger needs in the Speegleville area.
A special relationship exists between Willow Grove Baptist Church, one of the newest members of the Waco Regional Baptist Association, and Speegleville Baptist Church. The two churches enjoy an annual Thanksgiving worship service and these churches continue to seek ways to partner together to reach the Speegleville community and beyond with the love of Christ.

Along with a growing youth ministry led by Truett student Jordan Humler, the church recently called Shauna Suggs to lead their growing children’s ministry. David Denning leads the church’s music program, and the church is thankful for the many members who labor together through the various ministries of the church. The Lord continues to bless this congregation as they continue to grow.
